        I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were saying that it was good to know if you enjoy alcohol or not. I decided before my drunk accident that I didn't want to ever drink. I hated the experience, but now I have a funny story to tell so it's not so bad.

        I am not worried about it and you do not have to say sorry to me. It is just an honest mistake. That is the problem with posting on text only, people can easily misunderstood each other's without see face to face.

        It is good to understand other situations that is a part of being a human.

        tfw your computer RAM is bigger than one in your brain.

        Heh, pretty much. My brain's RAM is pretty big but I'm ADHD, so I have to keep all of something in my head at once to work on it (instead of just the relevant parts with other things retrieved as needed like a normal brain) and get reeeeeally easily distracted. It's better to keep notes and references so I can pick the whole thing up again when I refocus.

        I think this time the number of things I'm bouncing between when distracted or bored has just gotten out of hand. Normally it's just 3, right now it's more than 6. I might also be in a manic phase which dials up my ADHD, creative drive, curiosity, and lack of self preservation to an 11.

        I think I can honestly say that your sand detail is the first time I've seen sand tiles for a game with something that actually looks like the sea has flowed over it. That bottom left section looks like sand on a real beach.

        Yeah, the best ones are Holder's and they're still too small. I'm planning on trying to make some, if this drive to pixel lasts. I found some really great references and I'm curious to know if I can do it or not. I can't make any promises though.

        I really can't agree with you there, RBI, I think the NES Palette is poorly constructed. I really like Dawnbringer and Arne's stuff, but they both require a good understanding of color to use I guess.

        Ah, just realized how misleading some of this might be. Pixel Myth's palette won't ever be completely static or changed to an already existing one. I just want a more clearly defined palette to work from.

        High pulse turned out to be nothing, I just kept accidentally checking it right after going up the stairs. Side effect is the return of the endless migraine. So, maybe not a solution but it is a step forward.

        @Sharm, @starlight dream must have a point there; you can start a tread with things to try. Sometimes the most challenge seeking fellas will gather in the tread and themselves try that stuff and come in other treads with words for it and improvements maybe. Then, unless you seek credits for teaching, you'll be seeding lessons and new teachers for the knowledge you wanna spread. :)

I'm fine, not in any danger, it's just that my body is in the middle of a freak out and it's going to take a lot longer than normal and an external push to get there. I have home nursing now!

        The nerve damage is permanent, most likely caused by a viral infection. Eventually my brain will learn to compensate for it. What I meant earlier was if the lack of motion sickness while playing games was permanent. There's a chance it'll come back as the rest gets better.

    I got my start doing commissions for indie gaming projects and eventually found my way here. While I no longer do commissions, I really love to make pixel art and love seeing my artwork move and be interacted with. I'm currently busy making the Pixel Myth packs and loving every minute of it. I'd like to someday make a game that incorporates elements of RPG, VN and Point and Click Adventure games in a way that it's none of those genres but something different. I also enjoy writing and crafting (usually crochet).
